Barcelona are back to the winning ways in La Liga and will finish Saturday in second place after a comfortable 5-0 win against Las Palmas at Camp Nou, thanks to goals from Luis Suárez (2), Lionel Messi, Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal. The Blaugrana had a very easy afternoon against a good team, dominated the entire game and picked up three vital points at home.
The first 45 minutes belonged to Barça, who were in complete control of possession and used plenty of movement and smart passing to create great scoring chances. Suárez scored after 15 minutes, and the Blaugrana should have scored at least two more goals, but Las Palmas keeper Javi Varas made some incredible saves and kept the visitors down only a goal.
At halftime, a very strong performance from Barça, but they needed multiple second half goals to ensure the victory or things would get tricky.
Things didn't get tricky. After just 15 minutes in the second half, Barça scored three times and wrapped up the victory. Las Palmas went forward looking for consolation goals, but they couldn't find it and the Catalans won very comfortably, which included the first goal of Aleix Vidal's career with Barcelona. Amazing moment.
